Over the past few days I have only managed about two paragraphs on the novel. I am supposed to be doing more revisions on Dead Sea Murder, but I can't get to the library on my current schedule to get to info I need.

What I have been doing is looking into screenwriting as a new outlet for my writing. Because I won't move to LA, writing for TV is out and most big studios/ agents won't even look at an out of town movie script. What this leaves is small, independant studios doing low budget stuff. That is fine with me. A million-dollar movie deal would be fantastic, but is as unlikely as winning the lotto. I would be tickled pink to get a few thousand dollars from a 'indy' studio. Heck, I've been known to jump up and down over a short story sale that netted me a $5 check in canadian money that I couldn't even cash.
